Yankee Offers Patriotic Candle Collection

SOUTH DEERFIELD, Mass.-The Yankee Candle Company recently launched a limited edition Patriotic Candle Collection, currently on display in a red, white and blue theme in Yankee's 515 U.S. retail stores.

The American-made candle collection includes four fragrances. God Bless America recalls the scent of cooked apples, cinnamon,

and brown sugar. Let Freedom Ring offers robust notes of cedar and redwood, softened by wild petals and vanilla. Stars and Stripes features a blend of familiar cinnamon and baking spices. And America the Beautiful is a triple-layer tumbler candle featuring MacIntosh, Vanilla Cupcake and Blueberry Scone.

The candles, which retail for $25.99 apiece, have labels with images such as the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell and the American flag. Yankee offered a 10 percent discount to all military families for the first month after its launch.

"Our military customers often share that Yankee Candle fragrances provide them with the comfort of home when they are so far away," said Harlan Kent, CEO. "We are proud of the men and women serving our country. Our stores will reflect our appreciation and pay tribute to their dedication."

In addition to Yankee's retail stores, the candles are available at select specialty retailers and gift stores.
